The Handbook of Phonetic Sciences, 2nd Edition (1444317261) cover image
Thoroughly revised and updated, the second edition of The Handbook of Phonetic Sciences provides an authoritative account of the key topics in both theoretical and applied areas of speech communication, written by an international team of leading scholars and practitioners. 
  • Combines new and influential research, along with articulate overviews of the key topics in theoretical and applied areas of speech communication
  • Accessibly structured into five major sections covering: experimental phonetics; biological perspectives; modelling speech production and perception; linguistic phonetics; and speech technology
  • Includes nine entirely new chapters on topics such as phonetic notation and sociophonetics, speech technology, biological perspectives, and prosody
  • A streamlined and re-oriented structure brings all contributions up-to-date with the latest research, whilst maintaining the features that made the first edition so useful

“In conclusion, the second edition of ‘The Handbook of Phonetic Sciences’ is an invaluable reference. The clarity of its explanations, its accurate and updated review of theories and methods, and its analysis of both the strengths and weaknesses of each tool at the disposal of researchers will all be of great help to scholars involved in various degrees of speech analysis."  (Linguist List, 4 June 2013) 

 

"With this second edition, the Handbook of Phonetics Sciences will continue to be an outstanding resource for students, providing wide-ranging critical overviews of the development of key scientific topics and of the debates which are at the heart of contemporary phonetic research."
Gerard Docherty, Newcastle University

"This book is an outstanding collection of state-of-the-art surveys and original contributions. Revised and refreshed, it is essential reading for anyone engaged in understanding phonetic aspects of speech. "
John Local, University of York

“This new edition updates its coverage of a wide range of topics, reflecting the most recent trends in research. I will use it as a reference for both my teaching and my research.”
Patricia Keating, University of California, Los Angeles
